Introduction to Military Families: Current Controversies
"Children in military families make sacrifices and serve their country as much as anyone in uniform does.... In so many loving ways, our children quietly shoulder part of the burden, making their mom or dad understand that what they are doing is important."
Military Families Research Starter
Military families face long deployments, the challenge of one spouse remaining at home, child care concerns, and lack of community support. The nature of military service has changed, but the bravery, comradeship, and sacrifices military men and women make have remained steadfast over the centuries. The modern military has introduced support groups and organizations to help men and women overseas and their family members back home deal with their unique hardships.
